Over the course of five days, undergraduate students visit sites such as the Met, Guggenheim, MoMA, Frick, Cloisters, Pierpoint Morgan, Neue Galerie, and Sotheby's to experience, discuss, and interact with works in the museums and collections of New York. This is meant to be an invigorating, engaging, and entertaining trip for art history majors or any student with a demonstrable interest in the history of art and the world of its making, curation, and exchange.
Students are asked only to cover their meals and subway tickets. Airfare, transportation to and from airports, hotel and museum admittance are all covered by the department.
The New York trip is open to current Rice University undergraduate art history majors or any student with a demonstrable interest in the history of art. Students will be asked to fill out an application to be considered for the trip.
